KuzGun,I received your e-mail, but my answer returned because your mail adress is invalid (the @digitech.com.tr) [glow]sometimes it reject [/glow]I hope that one of the adresses I've found is yours. (@MSN or @Orkut) [glow]email@example.com is my adress[/glow]The correct bootloader makes the onboard led L blink fast (less than half second), stop for almost 9 seconds, then blink again...[glow] i am not very familiar with this AVR thingies i am using AVRdude its write the bootloader and verify and says its ok [/glow]Do you have the jumpers (auto reset - J4, and Serial On - J0) installed correctly on the board?[glow] Yes i am installed and using them.[/glow]The different timming to reset (in case you don't use the auto reset feature) is the opposite:First click the upload button.After this, press the reset button on the board, with different delays.Did you set your WinXP correct COM Port Speed to 19200?[glow] Yes in my case Com2 is my port and i changed the baudrate to 19200[/glow]Alternatively, you can upload sketches directly to the chip without the bootloader:Open the preferences.txt file in C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Application Data\Arduino\preferences.txt;Change the line uploading.using=[glow]bootloader[/glow] toupload.using=[glow]parallel[/glow] (if you are using parallel port programmer);Open Arduino IDE 0011;Connect the board with Parallel Port Cable (not serial);Upload sketch.[glow] i will try it.[/glow](reset button is not necessary).
And if you don't have a serial connector in your computer, you can use a converter cable with the Severino, buy an USB/Diecimila Arduino, or in your case (considering you like to make yourself the boards) to buy a kit to mount, that comes with the FTDI already soldered, or to etch and solder yourself the USB/Diecimila versions (it's a challenge, but I think it's possible).P.S.: There is another brazillian guy that is testing a USB shield to use with the Severino. It's a solution for you too.

You could mount an USB socket for power supply, if you are opposed to onboard usb-serial converter.
